Summary This offering from the Holidays around the World series introduces children to the Jewish Festival of Lights. Heiligman recounts the holiday's history and origins and describes how it is celebrated today--with candles, special foods such as potato latkes, and games such as dreidel. The main text is succinct and appropriate for reading aloud.
